Identification of superior parents are the important prerequisites for the development of high yielding genotypes. Combining ability is one of the most powerful analytical tools to decipher the genetic architecture of quantitative traits. The information regarding the gene effects involved in expression of the traits in question not only helps in suitable choice of breeding technique but also helps in identification of desirable parents and specific crosses for further exploitation. The present… CONTINUE READING
